Maserati confirms Levante SUV for 2015 and 2016 Alfieri during major FIAT announcements

Fiat had a media field day after the auto conglomerate’s CEO, Sergio Marchionne, held a major conference to announce Fiat’s near-future plans for all of its portfolios. This includes: Fiat themselves, Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Jeep, Abarth, Lancia, SRT and Dodge.

Thus, we start with Maserati, who recently shook the world with their gorgeous Alfieri Concept. Yes folks, it is approved for production and will hit showrooms sometime late next year for a 2016 model year. It will be made with the same engine choices as the Ghibli and the Quattroporte–two versions of the V6, both twin-turbocharged and displacing 3.0L, good for 450hp and 520hp form. Unfortunately, no mention of the original V8 that debuted on the Concept.

Next, the Levante will come as a 2015 model, which should be revealed sometime later this year. This project was pushed back originally because the Alfieri took priority after lots of positive press. It will be made only with all-wheel drive and will come with the same V6s, producing 350hp and 425hp.

The Gran Turismo on the other hand won’t be around until 2018, which means we’re going to continue running with the current model for the next few years. Either way, it should get a potent 560hp V8 with an exhaust note from heaven.
